As the 2009-2010 season draws nearer to the end (a week from tomorrow) the field sizes are starting to drop and unplayable races are beginning to mount. There’s an old racetrack axiom that says, “Play the card, don’t let it play you.” Keep that in mind when picking your spots and formulating wagering strategies on programs that won’t be offering an abundance of value.

Saturday’s first race has just fine entered and #3 Saxophone is listed at 3/5 on the morning line. He just crushed a similar field and probably will do so again, but at this price, who cares?

Using some of the help from the professional handicappers below, you can determine your own angle on placing a bet. For more information on how to bet or wager, click here.
